In brief: Probably
Bowel movement regularity can vary from daily to every two or three days.
Most people average at least daily but we are all different. I would encourage healthy diet and exercise with making sure you get appropriate fiber in your diet for colon health. If you experience any slowing down in your bowel movemente then start with gentle osmotic laxatives like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or stool softener colace.

Including fiber in diet is important but make sure that you drink enough fluid as well. Dietary changes can be tried first.
